And after you have set up your Internet phone service, you will be able to make phone or fax calls using the Internet. How does the Voice Gateway do all of this? By connecting your computers and peripherals, including phones or network: a series of computers or fax machines, to the Voice Gateway and connecting the Voice Gateway to your cable or DSL modem, then the devices connected for the purpose of data Voice Gateway can direct and control communications for your network. sharing, storage, and/or transmission between users. But what does all of this mean? Networks are useful tools for sharing Internet access and computer resources. Multiple computers can share Internet access, so you don’t need more than one high-speed Internet connection. With Internet phone service, your Internet access can now be shared by your phones or fax machines as well. You will be able to make phone calls using the account you set up with your Internet Telephony Service Provider (ITSP), even while you’re surfing lan (local area network): the computers the Internet. Plus, you can access one printer from different computers and access data located on another and networking products that make up computer’s hard drive. Networks are even used for playing multiplayer video games. So, networks not only are the network in your home or office. useful in homes and offices, but also can be fun. ethernet: an IEEE standard network PCs on a wired network create a LAN, or Local Area Network.

  12. 12. Voice Gateway with Router Chapter 2: Networking Basics An Introduction to Local Area Networks Simply put, a router is a network device that connects two networks together. The Voice Gateway connects your local area network (LAN), or the group of PCs in your home or office, to the Internet. The Voice Gateway processes and regulates the data that travels between these two networks. The Voice Gateway’s Network Address Translation (NAT) technology protects your network of PCs so users on the nat (network address translation): NAT Internet cannot “see” your PCs. This is how your LAN remains private. The Voice Gateway protects your network technology translates IP addresses of a by inspecting the first packet coming in through the Internet port before delivery to the final destination on one of local area network to a different IP the Ethernet ports. The Voice Gateway inspects Internet port services like the web server, ftp server, or other address for the Internet. Internet applications, and, if allowed, it will forward the packet to the appropriate PC on the LAN side. The Use of IP Addresses ip (internet protocol): a protocol used to IP stands for Internet Protocol. Every device in an IP-based network, including PCs, print servers, and routers, send data over a network. requires an IP address to identify its location, or address, on the network. This applies to both the Internet and LAN connections. ip address: the address used to identify a There are two ways of assigning IP addresses to your network devices. computer or device on a network. A static IP address is a fixed IP address that you assign manually to a PC or other device on the network. Since a static ip address: a fixed address static IP address remains valid until you disable it, static IP addressing ensures that the device assigned it will assigned to a computer or device that is always have that same IP address until you change it. Static IP addresses are commonly used with network connected to a network. devices such as server PCs or print servers. Chapter 2: Networking Basics 5 An Introduction to Local Area Networks
  13. 13. Voice Gateway with Router If you use the Voice Gateway to share your cable or DSL Internet connection, contact your ISP to find out if they have assigned a static IP address to your account. If so, you will need that static IP address when configuring the Voice Gateway. You can get the information from your ISP. A dynamic IP address is automatically assigned to a device on the network. These IP addresses are called dynamic ip address: a temporary IP dynamic because they are only temporarily assigned to the PC or other device. After a certain time period, they address assigned by a DHCP server. expire and may change. If a PC logs onto the network (or the Internet) and its dynamic IP address has expired, the DHCP server will assign it a new dynamic IP address. dhcp (dynamic host configuration A DHCP server can either be a designated PC on the network or another network device, such as the Voice protocol): a protocol that lets one device Gateway. By default, the Voice Gateway’s Internet Connection Type is DHCP (obtain an IP address automatically). on a local network, known as a DHCP server, assign temporary IP addresses to The PC or network device obtaining an IP address is called the DHCP client. DHCP frees you from having to the other network devices, typically assign IP addresses manually every time a new user is added to your network. computers. For DSL users, many ISPs may require you to log on with a user name and password to gain access to the Internet. This is a dedicated, high-speed connection type called Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE). PPPoE is similar to a dial-up connection, but PPPoE does not dial a phone number when establishing a connection. It also will provide the Voice Gateway with a dynamic IP address to establish a connection to the Internet. By default, a DHCP server (on the LAN side) is enabled on the Voice Gateway. If you already have a DHCP server running on your network, you MUST disable one of the two DHCP servers. If you run more than one DHCP server on your network, you will experience network errors, such as conflicting IP addresses. To disable DHCP on the Voice Gateway, see the Router - LAN Setup section in “Chapter 5: Using the Web-based Utility.” 6 Chapter 2: Networking Basics The Use of IP Addresses

  56. 56. Voice Gateway with Router Appendix A: Troubleshooting This appendix provides solutions to problems that may occur during the installation and operation of the Voice Gateway. Read the description below to solve your problems. If you can't find an answer here, check the website of your Internet Telephony Service Provider (ITSP) or the Linksys website at www.linksys.com. Common Problems and Solutions 1. I don’t hear a dial tone, and the PHONE LED is not lit. Go through this checklist until your problem is solved: • Make sure the telephone is plugged into the PHONE port. • Disconnect and re-connect the RJ-11 telephone cable between the Voice Gateway and telephone. • Make sure your telephone is set to its tone setting (not pulse). • Make sure your network has an active Internet connection. Try to access the Internet. If you do not have a connection, power off your network devices, including the Voice Gateway and cable/DSL modem. Wait 30 seconds, and power on the cable/DSL modem first. Then power on the Voice Gateway and other network devices. • Verify your account information and confirm that the phone line is registered with your ITSP. 2. I’m trying to access the Voice Gateway’s Web-based Utility, but I do not see the login screen. Instead, I see a screen saying, “404 Forbidden.” If you are using Windows Explorer, perform the following steps until you see the Web-based Utility’s login screen (Netscape Navigator will require similar steps): A. Click File. Make sure Work Offline is NOT checked. B. Press CTRL + F5. This is a hard refresh, which will force Windows Explorer to load new webpages, not cached ones.

To set a static IP address, you can only use the ranges 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.99 and 192.168.0.151 to 192.168.0.254. Each PC or network device that uses TCP/IP must have a unique address to identify itself in a network. If the IP address is not unique to a network, Windows will generate an IP conflict error message. You can assign a static IP address to a PC by performing the following steps: For Windows 98 and Millennium: A. Click Start, Setting, and Control Panel. Double-click Network. B. In The following network components are installed box, select the TCP/IP-> associated with your Ethernet adapter. If you only have one Ethernet adapter installed, you will only see one TCP/IP line with no association to an Ethernet adapter. Highlight it and click the Properties button. C. In the TCP/IP properties window, select the IP address tab, and select Specify an IP address. Enter a unique IP address that is not used by any other computer on the network connected to the Voice Gateway. You can only use an IP address in the ranges 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.99 and 192.168.0.151 to 192.168.0.254. Make sure that each IP address is unique for each PC or network device. D. Click the Voice Gateway tab, and in the New Voice Gateway prompt, enter 192.168.0.1, which is the default IP address of the Voice Gateway. Click the Add button to accept the entry. E. Click the DNS tab, and make sure the DNS Enabled option is selected. Enter the Host and Domain names (e.g., John for Host and home for Domain). Enter the DNS entry provided by your ISP. If your ISP has not provided the DNS IP address, contact your ISP to get that information or go to its website for the information. F. Click the OK button in the TCP/IP properties window, and click Close or OK for the Network window. G. Restart the computer when asked. 50 Appendix A: Troubleshooting Common Problems and Solutions
